Finally, she wanted to just keep the shark by her side because they were best friends.

Demon masters are only allowed in four separate places on Earth because all of them are gifted with real magic, unlike all other magicians and wizards whose tricks rarely ever work at all; those regions containing magic are the Demon Island directly east, the Demon Mountain directly west, the Demon Terrace directly north, and finally there is a fifth location known as the Demon Valley which can be found south of the island where they have almost no powers at all!
